Biography

John Morrissey is Professor of Human Geography at University of Galway.

Research

Professor Morrissey's main research interests are in geopolitics, security and international development. He is a former Government of Ireland Research Fellow, which he spent at CUNY Graduate Center in New York, and is a past Quatercentenary Fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge and Fellow of Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. He has held additional research fellowships at Virginia Tech, the University of Oxford and Australian National University. Over the last ten years, Professor Morrissey's research has been centred on the geopolitical dimensions of contemporary US national security interests in the Middle East, with a particular focus on United States Central Command (CENTCOM). The Long War, a critical history of CENTCOM, documenting the ongoing imperial interventions of the command, was published by University of Georgia Press in 2017 and shortlisted for the Julian Minghi Prize. His current research is concerned with critically theorising human security in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and wider global human-environmental crises. In 2021, he was appointed International Consultant on Human Security in the United Nations Human Development Report Office. In 2023, he was appointed to the InterAcademy Partnership Panel on Human Security, which is working with the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security (UNTFHS) and the World Academy of Art and Science (WAAS) on the global campaign, Human Security For All (HS4A).

Teaching

Professor Morrissey graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a first class degree in Natural Science, before beginning an ESRC-funded PhD in Geography at the University of Exeter. After completing his PhD, he taught at Exeter for a year before going to University of Galway, where he lectures on political and cultural geography, critical geopolitics, and international development. He previously served as Head of Geography at University of Galway, and in 2009 established the Masters in Environment, Society and Development, a leading MA programme in the university that attracts international students from all over the world and involves students working on the ground with the UNDP in Bosnia. In 2011, Professor Morrissey won University of Galway's President's Award for Teaching Excellence, and in 2012 he won the NAIRTL National Academy Award for Research and Teaching Excellence. In 2012, he also completed a Masters in Academic Practice at University of Galway's Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching. In 2014, he was promoted to Senior Lecturer, and in 2015 he was appointed Associate Director of University of Galway's Moore Institute. He served as Head of the School of Geography and Archaeology for 2017/18, won the President's Award for Teaching Excellence for a second time in 2018, and was promoted to Personal Professor in 2020.

Research Interests

Professor Morrissey is a political and cultural geographer whose work draws upon the writings of Michel Foucault, Edward Said, Judith Butler and others in critiquing how dominant and violent forms of contemporary Western interventionism are underpinned by imperial and neoliberal discourses of security. His research over the last ten years has been concerned with the geopolitical scripting, political economy and biopolitics of US foreign policy in the Middle East and Central Asia, with a particular focus on United States Central Command (CENTCOM). More recently, he has begun work on the challenge of enacting more transformative and non-violent practices of 'human security' and of envisioning a 'more-than-human' sense of planetary precarity. His books include Haven (Edward Elgar Publishing), The Long War (University of Georgia Press), Spatial Justice and the Irish Crisis (Royal Irish Academy), Key Concepts in Historical Geography (Sage) and Negotiating Colonialism (Royal Geographical Society). A full list of his publications can be found at ORCID.

Professor Morrissey's research has been supported by grants from the British Academy, the British International Studies Association, 
the Clinton Institute for American Studies, the Irish Research Council, National University of Ireland, NUI Galway Community Knowledge Initiative, NUI Galway Millennium Fund, and the University of Cambridge. He was a Government of Ireland IRCHSS Fellow in 2007/08 at the Center for Place, Culture and Politics at CUNY Graduate Center, where he worked closely with David Harvey and the late Neil Smith. This research culminated in a geopolitical history of CENTCOM for University of Georgia PressIn 2013/14, he was elected the Quatercentenary Fellow at Emmanuel College, Cambridge and Visiting Fellow at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. Professor Morrissey's more recent work on an IRC project, Haven, critically examined the EU's security response to the Mediterranean humanitarian crisis. As part of the project, he held visiting scholarships at LUISS University in Rome, and St Antony's College, Oxford. In 2021, Professor Morrissey was appointed International Consultant on Human Security in the Human Development Report Office (HDRO) of the UN, and in 2023 was elected Visiting Fellow at the Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs at Australian National University.
